It works great! I couldn't believe it till I saw it myself xD

The
only thing about the last step that was different than the step by step
was I have windows Xp and most Xp users don't have the x86 part in
program files so basically I put those last 2 files in C:\Program
Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin

Which works perfectly xD Just letting other people know that if you don't have that x86 thing
then don't worry it works fine this way too Very Happy

Thanks again guys! Happy Simming

Ok! I managed to make the game work. All I had to do finally was delete some of my content that wasn't compatible with the new version and install your manual update plus the fix and everything was fine. Thank you very much for your prompt answer. The Sims Plumbob 1

Re: *MUST READ* How to install The Sims 3 correctly.

Post by Gearbox on Tue 06 Nov 2012, 21:33

Hello everyone. First of all massive respect to the team working behind this for making the whole installation process for the rather large number of expansion packs for sims 3 very easy and failproof. I've stuck to this install method ever since it worked perfectly for the first expansion packs I installed, Generations & Ambitions.

However I may have some information to add here, I don't know if this has been mentioned, but here goes.

This install method that I am using is basically for people who are not installing the expansion packs for Sims 3 at one shot
and they do not want to reinstall the whole base game and other expansions they already had in order to install a new expansion pack.

I've installed different expansions at later dates, without reinstalling the existing cracked game or any of the installed expansions.

The first time I installed
using the method listed in the first post, I had installed
Base game + Expansions : Ambitions, Generations.

So after this installation (by using the files and the crack in the fix) next I downloaded at a much later date, Expansion : Pets and installed it.

and today I finished downloading Expansion : Late Night, installed it, running successfully with custom sim Mods and at highest graphic details for hours now.
(yes I am doing it in the wrong order chronologically xD)

So here's what I did to to install the expansions after I had already installed the Sims 3 base game + some expansions I installed previously and were cracked.
I did not reinstall the base game or any of the expansion packs at all.

1) Relocate the 'Mods' folders from the game directory to any other folder not a part of Sims 3
& copy your game-save files to some folder not in the EA directory in documents (basically a backup)
( very very necessary or it will screw the installation if you don't remove the mod folder and contents)

I am not too sure how custom content or store downloaded stuff affects the installation since I dont have any of those. I have a huge custom map installed but it did not affect the installation.

2) Apply the Manual Patch (Link),
It will notify you that its already up to date, but continue anyhow, if it says that is actually updating, go ahead for sure.
Kindly see whether the update patch is supported in the latest version of the fix listed before applying it.

3) Install the EXPANSION PACKS you just downloaded / wanted to install.
For a better chance of a successful install, install from an unmodified installer of the expansion packs.
IMPORTANT: Do not crack or do anything at all after the installation of the expansion packs.

4) Apply the files from the Ultimate Fix provided here only for the EXPANSION packs you just installed.

5) Apply the crack from the Ultimate Fix to the base game folder, NOT the expansion pack you just installed.

6) Put back your save files (in the saves folder) and mod folder in the original location in C:\Users\YOUR USERNAME HERE\Documents\Electronic Arts\
Most likely you might find your save files untouched / unmodified. The mod folder still needs to be put back.

You're all set to go. Start up Sims 3 !

Regards,
- Gearbox.
